new to custom WC...what is best?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
here's my scenario. I have my 4770K under a corsair H80 and i think it does an OK job. however, my two sapphire 7970 vapor-x ghz GPU's need some cooling if i want to maximize my OC (without going LN2 of phase of course)

my question...what would be a mid-range "kit" or setup for cooling my two GPU's together in one loop. I 90% would never expand to 3 GPU's ever so I would like some recommendations on something sized appropriately

I want to cool the whole GPU (vrms) so i think y'all call it a "full block" cooler? I would need two of them, tubing,barbs, res,pump,and rad...right?

I definately have a size constraint as my corsair case (for the rad at least) is fairly full with the H80 already in it (so theres no room left on inside-top of case..Either I get a bigger case (more hassle than i feel like ATM) or possibly consider a 240 rad on the outside back (or top) of the case...any other thoughts?

thanks team!!

Well, you are essentially cooling, at full load worst case, 500W worth of heat out of 2 7970's. A single 2x120mm radaitor will not cool it much better, if at all, than air. I would go no less than 3x120mm with a push pull fan config to 'properly' cool those cards.
